More Information

The main entry point to Puerto Galera is via Manila. From Manila there is a sea-plane option to Puerto Galera Bay. Alternatively (and more affordably) it is possible to take a taxi or bus from the airport to Batangas Pier – ask for the Tollway or Expressway to be sure of the fastest route.

If you opt to hire a car, drive through the South Luzon Expressway, turn right to Star Toll gate and then head to Batangas Pier. From there, you can either park your car and ride a ferry going to Puerto Galera or have your car ride a RoRo (roll on, roll off) and take it with you.
